Duct Tape Drum Shell Help? Answered

Will coating the outside of a drum shell in duct tape drastically change the tone or anything else? I wanted to pattern the outside of them with checkers made out of duct tape.


It may very well change the tone of the drum. Drum shells that are made of wood have a different tone than those that don't.

Put the tape on and see what it does. If you don't like it you can always take it off.

I'd probably try it on a drum I don't use that often :) It'll take a while to get money to buy more tape though :(
